(WO) – Shell Upstream Overseas Services (I) Limited, a subsidiary of Shell plc, has completed the sale of its 35% participating interest in Indonesia’s Masela Production Sharing Contract (“Masela PSC”) to Indonesia’s PT Pertamina Hulu Energi and PETRONAS Masela Sdn. Bhd. The sale includes the Abadi natural gas project.

INPEX Corporation holds a 65% operating interest in Masela PSC and is the operator of the Abadi natural gas project. The project is located in the Masela block, 150 km offshore Saumlaki in Maluku province, Indonesia.
